    The RICS Homebuyer Report is the right choice when purchasing a home constructed from standard building materials such as tile and brick, in reasonable order and build after 1900.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    A Building Survey (once known as a Full Structural Survey in West End) will also be conducted by a RICS qualified surveyor and is more comprehensive. Opt for this for unconventional , for example stone wall properties.

HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in West End and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is effectively the same.

If the West End property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out substantial modifications, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, but it will give exhaustive analysis of the West End property's general condition as well as an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

We have made an offer for a building with a converted attic in West End. What aspects of the roofing will be considered?

West End residences in good condition can still be subject to difficulties with the roof, for example, damp. All parts of the roof must be considered during the survey. This can include anything from collar beams to sheeting. Your chartered surveyors may then recommend that some faults need urgent attention.

Replacement of tiles and other roof repairs can be the cause of serious accidents, which is why modern contractors refuse to work without scaffolding. It may be advisable to source an estimate for any work prior to exchange.

House Prices

There is a detached property in MK42 priced at £213, 948. What things does the surveyor take into account when estimating house prices in West End ?

Any number of issues which could positively or negatively affect house prices like the existence of any restrictions over use of the property or whether there are any original features. You can try to benchmark prices house prices achieved in West End at the same time for similar houses.

The means house prices recorded between Jul and Oct 2012 was £210, 848, which is £3, 100 less than the asking price and the flat/house average was £191, 523. 15, Ivy Lane, Wilstead, Bedford, Bedford, Bedford, MK45 3DN a detached property sold for £219, 995 .

An impartial way for you to get an independent house valued is to get a Homebuyer Report (or Property Valuation Report) which includes a Property Valuation Report by default.

Damage caused by high rainfall

What impact can high levels of rainfall have on a West End property?

I find it odd that the impact high levels of rainfall can have on properties is usually overlooked. Signs that gutters are a cause for concern include flaking or efflorescence on external walls. Blocked rainwater goods can result in water damage.

That is not to say that drainage problems should cause you to reconsider a purchase. They are usually a simple matter to resolve. If not cared for, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and will get increasingly difficult to successfully resolve.
